LFFP Podcast Ep 1 - Bluff Country Co-op - Part 1

Our first podcast episode!

In the Local Food Fine Print, we interview food buyers to learn how farmers can access their market and improve relations with buyers. The focus is on intermediate markets like co-ops, restaurants, food hubs, grocery stores, etc. Plus, we discuss details like insurance, pricing, food safety, and more.

In this episode, I interview Jason of Bluff Country Co-op. We talk about produce availability in Southeast MN, what they do when a farmer's crop they were going to buy fails, selling produce to the co-op and how to start that conversation, quality requirements, and delivery schedules.

Listen to it here.
